Memorial service to be held for 10-year-old girl hit, killed by OUC truck
Troopers say Marisol Gonzalez was walking on sidewalk when she was struck by truck
The family of the 10-year-old girl who was hit and killed by an Orlando Utilities Commission truck said at a news conference on Friday they will hold a memorial service on Saturday.
Troopers say 10-year-old Marisol Gonzalez of Orlando passed away at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children at around 5 p.m. on Wednesday.
The lawyer for the family said the family is grieving and set up a trust fund to afford a burial in Puerto Rico. The family donated Marisol's organs and six lives have been saved by them already, according to the lawyer.
The memorial service will be held at the Potters House Church on Pershing Avenue at 6 p.m.
FHP says the OUC truck was traveling eastbound on Pershing Avenue on December 2 when the driver tried to turn left onto Wild Horse Road. Witnesses say the OUC truck turned into the path of a van traveling westbound on Pershing Avenue.
When the van hit the OUC truck, witnesses say the OUC truck was thrown into Marisol and a friend, who were walking on the sidewalk.
Troopers say the crash is still under investigation and they haven't determined if anyone will be charged in Marisol's death.
OUC called the crash an unfortunate accident and said their thoughts and prayers are with the family.
